I wrote a small Blender plugin, and I was wondering what the common location for plugins is in Blender? The plugin opens a small UI inside the viewport to perform an operation on the scene.

My priority would be:

  1. A button in the viewport (visible in all modes) or
  2. Adding it to the Window menu.

Is either of these options a common location for Blender plugins?

It's up to you but from what you say anything that relates to viewport probably fits in as VIEW3D panel. note you can append to existing panels to reduce clutter.
